Setting up a sandbox to play in

Such a beautiful drawing of a bear. Look at how the foilage in the background as well. So loose and exact at the same time. Pair with @A_single_bear.

— “This used to be our playground”. A beatiful call for more experiment and play on personal sites. Interesting points in the accompanying twitter thread as well.

— I actually was already doing some prep work to get blank html/css canvases in place within the Hugo static site generator I use for The post above was a good call to action to move things along: how to allow for full/raw html and include custom CSS for a single post.

— Next up a first actual experiment in which we explore CSS columns to create a medieval looking page layout, quickly running into the issue that having an image span more than one column while reflowing the text across columns in the remaining space is not yet possible. Pity, but still good fun to work on this.

Sounds: Ad People by Melted Bodies is crazy noisy good and nsfw, probably.

Still working through all the very interesting sounds listed here: “41 albums and compilations comprising anything from psychedelic rock to free jazz, improvised music, ethnic, ambient, electronic hybrids of all sorts, both new and reissues.” Check out Moğollar, Praed Orchestra! and João Lobo.

Also, Krust – The Edge of everything. “…his love for ultra-extended intros and long silences is firmly intact.”
